BT Young Scientist

Best wishes to our budding scientists in Transition Year, Emily Flanagan and Faye Twomey, as they embark on their Young Scientist adventure this week. The girls travelled to Dublin with their teacher, Ms Gráinne Ryan, and were emphatically greeted by their fellow TY students in the RDS on the Thursday! The title of our girls’ project is “Are produce stickers necessary and is there an alternative?”. Produce stickers are small stickers made from petroleum-based plastic, which are non-biodegradable and non-compostable, i.e. not good for the environment. The aim of the girls’ project was to determine if in fact these stickers are necessary; followed by investigating if there is an equally effective environmentally-friendly alternative to them. During the course of their project, the girls discovered a biodegradable label made by an Irish brand. The girls also created their own edible stamp for the fruit and vegetables. We wish them the very best of luck from everyone in the Presentation Thurles community. #presproud

Christmas Pantomime

Well done to all of our students who were involved in the Thurles Panto production of Cinderella in The Source over the festive period. Sixth Year students, Gráinne Condon and Lilly Hayes, played the lead parts of ‘Cinderella’ and ‘Dandini’ respectively. Emma Mahony, Orlaith Whitehead, Molly O’Brien, Pippa Quigley, Grace Kelly and Eva Barrett all starred in this brilliant and entertaining production. Well done to each and every one of this talented bunch of girls, we are very proud you.
